Tis the season for family, friends, celebrating and… cosmetic surgery!
The American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS), reports that the holiday season is THE time to make a tweak. It’s also the busiest time of year for cosmetic treatments – requests increase by an average of 25% during the holiday season and through the end of winter. Is it any wonder?
Holiday parties while fun, can be pretty stressful. We all want to look our best when we see family, friends, and those we’d like to impress. This leads those that are conscious of their appearance to take a proactive approach and seek cosmetic surgery. This time of year is appropriate for cosmetic surgery especially because people find themselves with a little more time to relax, making procedures that may take more recovery time, like Facelifts, increasingly viable. For those that are looking for a pre-party quick fix, non-surgical treatments such as ThermiTight, and ThermiVa can be done relatively quickly with beautiful results and little to no downtime. Good options for those that want an even simpler beauty boost are Xeomin and dermal fillers. Dermal fillers like Belotero are great for giving a bit of extra volume to lips, while Radiesse can minimize the appearance of wrinkles and enhance contours. Xeomin can be the perfect solution to wrinkles, crows feet and frown lines. Injectable procedures have immediate payoff and zero downtime, making them the best choice for those with packed calendars.
Gifting plastic surgery and aesthetics treatments is becoming a huge trend.
It’s becoming more and more common for couples and family members to get each other gift certificates for facial rejuvenation and cosmetic procedures. In addition, men are more willing to be on the receiving end of cosmetic procedures if it’s a gift from their wife, girlfriend, or significant other. So what’s on top of the wish list?
The most popular cosmetic treatments being gifted this year include ThermiVa, eyelid surgery, rhinoplasty, and injectables like Xeomin, Belotero, and Radiesse. Other sought-after gifts are minimally invasive treatments like fat reduction and skin tightening under the chin with ThermiTight, skin resurfacing with lasers and peels, and lip, chin, and cheek enhancement with fillers, fat, or implants. With the most modern & up-to-date techniques and less invasive options, recovery is quicker and easier – a major factor accounting for the uptick in procedure gifting.
We all know the holiday season ends in a new year, full of resolutions to change – both inside and out. It may be winter, but now is the time to be proactive about any changes you may want to reveal come swimsuit season. HCG Physician Supervised Weight Loss can help you lose 1-2 pounds of fat per day, undoing the damage done (and then some) from overindulgence in holiday feasts. Consider how good you’ll feel in the summer if you have given yourself lots of time to recover by electing to have a cosmetic surgery procedure in the winter! Any necessary post-surgical bandages, drains, or compression garments can be more easily hidden under sweaters, scarves, and other cool-weather clothing. Even laser hair removal is best planned ahead and done in the winter to achieve permanent hair reduction by the time you’re ready to show some skin again for the summer.
The holidays are all about joy and happiness – taking measures to feel and look your best can help you make the most out of this time of year.
